Chocolate, beer, waffles and confectionWith this heading, we want to point to the fact that Belgian confection has an excellent reputation abroad. We noticed this because we are active abroad with our curtain fabrics of the brand Dizz Design. The appreciation for our expertise being a Belgian confection workplace opens many doors.
With a lot of care and attention, our confection workplace produces roman shades and curtains for both national and international customers on a daily basis. Through one of our dealers, you can get to know our collections.
Ever since the arise of Duette® Shades, the pleated products have gained enormously in popularity. Duette® fabrics are pleated fabrics with a honeycomb structure. This causes a double layer which makes that the typical cords in the fabric are no longer visible.
The specific shape and structure of Duette® fabric brings along some technical specifications which make pleated blinds a very profitable type of window covering. The insulation value of Duette® Shade is in no way comparable with any other type of window covering.
An excellent insulatorBesides the great aesthetic character of wooden window coverings, we can stress the functional aspect as well. Wood is after all an excellent insulator. This might be important to keep the warmth inside during winter time and to keep the heath out during summer.
Of course, we have to mention that wood is a natural product which can show some reaction as a result of warmth and humidity. These minor changes of the wood give your product a little extra cachet.
16, 25, 35 or 50 mmThe width of the slat is very important while choosing a horizontal blind. In general, we can say that the larger the window, the wider you can take the slats. Smaller window will be more elegant with 16mm slats, while large windows are at their best with 50mm slats.
Ladder tapeTo give a blind with aluminium slats with a width of 50mm more character, you can choose for a ladder tape as an additional option. The strings running through the slats are accentuated in this way. Of course it is a matter of taste, but many see it as a decorative value. You can choose the colour of the ladder tape so that it fits perfectly the colour of your slat.
However, daredevils can also go for a contrasting colour.
